This General Board of Founders meets once each year, at commencement time, on the univer- sity grounds in Atlanta, to inspect their institution, to review all matters of large importance in the life of the University and to give directions to the Executive Com- mittee which is elected by them, and from their num- ber, and which will look after the details of manage- ment of the Institution between the meetings of the Board of Founders. Each member of the Board repre- sents a gift of one thousand dollars or more to the University. Nothing more ideal has ever been proposed in the management of an institution. It is already in opera- tion and its perfect practicability is largely responsible for the marvelous success of the University. Prospective students will not fail to note the quality of these Founders, representing the thousands of men and women whose sacrifices and prayers have consum- mated this fine purpose. As representatives and gover- nors of the Institution they will take pleasure in giving any enquirers information as to the aims and progress of the University. *The list of Founders given on the following pages is cor- rected up to March 1, 1917.

Morrow HISTORICAL SKETCH The historical genesis of Oglethorpe University takes us back to the middle of the eighteenth century when under the leadership of Presbyterian men, Princeton College was founded in New Jersey and rapidly became the institution largely patronized by the young men from Presbyterian families all over the nation. After a while the long distances which must be traveled by stage or on horseback, suggested the building of a similar institu- tion under the auspices of Presbyterianism in the South. The movement began with the spring meeting of Hope- well Presbytery in the year 1823, and eventuated in the founding of a manual training school and this, in turn, became Oglethorpe College in 1835 when Midway Hill, in the suburbs of Milledgeville, the then capital of the State of Georgia, was chosen for the location of the In- stitution. Old Oglethorpe College was thus the first de- nominational college or university between the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans south of the Virginia line, and, of a right, claimed to be the Alma Mater of all that bril- liant company of institutions which were born after her in this vast empire. The facilities of the old Oglethorpe were adequate for the time. The main building was probably the handsomest college structure in the Southeast when it was erected and "contained the finest college chapel in the United States not excepting Yale, Harvard or Prince- ton". In the Faculty of the Institution may be found the names of men who are world-famous. Among these Oglethorpe University 19 were Joseph Le Conte, the great geologist; James Wood- row, the brilliant scientist and devoted Christian; Sam- uel K. Talmadge, the eminent administrator, and many others. It is, perhaps, the chief glory of the old Ogle- thorpe that after four years of instruction she graduated Sidney Lanier in the famous class of 1859 and that he was a tutor to her sons until the Spring of '61 when with the Oglethorpe cadets he marched away to the wars. Shortly before his death, Lanier, looking back over his career, remarked to a friend that the greatest moral im- pulse of his life had come to him during his college days at Oglethorpe through the influence of Dr. Wood- row. Her other eminent alumni include governors, jus- tices, moderators of the General Assembly, discoverers, inventors and a host of honest, industrious and superb laborers for the highest ideals of humanity. Oglethorpe "died at Gettysburg," for during the war her sons were soldiers, her endowment was in Confeder- ate bonds and her buildings, used as barracks and hos- pital, were later burned. An effort was made to revive the Institution in the 70's and to locate it in Atlanta, but the evils of reconstruction days and financial disaster made the adventure impossible and unsuccessful, and after a year and a half of struggle the doors were closed for the second time. In the meantime, there had come with the separation of the Northern and Southern Church, a condition of affairs which left the Southern half with no capstone to its educational system. The best minds of the Southern Church have been constantly restless under this fact. A 20 Oglethorpe University number of efforts were made to restore the Presbyterian Church to its leadership in the educational affairs of the South, but each failed for its own particular reason. The really marvelous success which has attended the effort begun in the Spring of 1912 to found a great Southern Presbyterian University, has largely resulted from the determination of the men and women who form her constituency, that their denomination shall no longer be the only strong denomination in the South without a university for its student life. Their Institution is named Oglethorpe, that the fine ideals and traditions of those early years of struggle and achievement may be pre- served and that whatever of failure and disappointment filled them may be retrieved. Only five years have elapsed since the campaign was begun and they have been years of financial disaster and utter turmoil, yet the assets and subscription pledges of Oglethorpe University are fast approaching the sum of a million dollars as the result of the most unusual and self-sacrificing liberality on the part of over five thou- sand people. The corner stone of Oglethorpe University was laid on January 21, 1915, with her trustful motto engraven upon it: "Manu Dei Resurrexit (By the Hand of God She has Risen from the Dead.)" THE OPENING, SEPTEMBER 20, 1916 So it came to pass that Oglethorpe University, built by the Presbyterians of the South, with the aid of generous Atlantans of all faiths, opened its doors in the Fall of Oglethorpe University 21 1916. After fifty years of rest beneath the gray ashes of fratricidal strife she rises to breathe the later airs of a new day. Her first building, constructed of granite, trimmed with limestone, covered with slate and as near fireproof as human skill can make it, was ready for oc- cupancy in the Fall of 1916, when her first class gath- ered on her beautiful campus on Peachtree Road. A faculty equal to that of any cognate institution in the country has been formed. The work of raising funds goes steadily on. Ground has been cleared for the sec- ond building, which will be commenced shortly. And all of this has been done in the midst of financial dis- aster that darkened the spirit of the whole nation, and against the evil influences of a colossal war, which caused the very joints of the world to gape. THE ROMANCE OF HER RESURRECTION The story of the resurrection of Oglethorpe reads like a romance. Beginning only four years ago with a con- tribution of $100.00 a year for ten years, it soon gath- ered with it a band of great-hearted Atlanta men who determined to see that their city had a university, as well as a band of far-seeing Presbyterian leaders, who wished to erect a capstone to their educational system in this splendid metropolis. The story of how dollar was added to dollar during a campaign of four years; of how no less than seventy Atlanta men gave each $1,000.00 or more to the enterprise ; of how the story has been told in church after church of the Presbyterian denomination all over the South from Galveston, Texas, to Charlottes- 22 Oglethorpe University ville, Virginia, and from Marshall, Missouri, to Braden- town, Florida ; the splendid triumph of the Atlanta cam- paign staged in this city just two years ago; all this is well known. During the last year the same wonderful record has been maintained. There are now something like five thousand men, women and children, all of whom have contributed or promised from fifty cents to $35,000.00. They are the Founders of Oglethorpe Uni- versity; they belong to the great Founders' Club which is carrying the movement forward so splendidly. The immediate goal set for the present campaign is something like $3,000,000.00. To this end her many friends are getting solidly back of the Institution with their money as well as their words of praise and prayer. HER ARCHITECTURAL BEAUTY An idea of the quality of construction and design of the Institution may be gained from the accompanying illustrations. (See Frontispiece.) It will be seen that the architects and landscape artist have spared no pains to make it one of the really beau- tiful universities of America. The architecture is Col- legiate Gothic; the building material is a beautiful blue granite trimmed with limestone. All the buildings will be covered with heavy variegated slates. The interior construction is of steel, concrete, brick and hollow tile. The first building, which is nearing completion, is the one on the right of the entrance seen in the foreground of the bird's-eye view: The space has been cleared for the erection of the second building, which is the one with Oglethorpe University 23 the tower on the left of the entrance. The total cost of construction of the buildings shown in the above design with the landscape work required, will be approximately $1,500,000.00. The building plan has been unani- mously adopted and will be followed out in its entirety. HER SPIRITUAL AND INTELLECTUAL IDEALS But it is not so much the magnificent exterior of the Institution about which the men who are back of Ogle- thorpe are most concerned, it is the spiritual and intel- lectual life of their university. To that end they have resolved to form a faculty and adopt a curriculum that will be of the highest possible quality, their thought be- ing excellence in every department. They will gather all of the fine ideals of past efforts to found a Southern Presbyterian University and endeavor to weave their spirit into the life of their institution. They will take the superb traditions of the old Oglethorpe and add the best of this present age to them. Doubtless Oglethorpe will be a big university some day, but she is already a great one, and it is greatness rather than bigness which her founders crave most for her. FOUNDERS' BOOK In the Founders' Room at Oglethorpe there will be a Book containing the name of every man, woman and child who aided in the founding of the University, ar- ranged alphabetically, by States. That Book will be accessible to every student and visitor who may want to know who it was from his or her home that took part in 24 Oglethorpe University the doing of this, the greatest deed that has been at- tempted for our sons and daughters in this generation. The Book is not yet complete, because the work is not yet finished, and each month is adding many to this roll of honor, whose names will thus be preserved in the life and archives of Oglethorpe University forever. STATE MEMORIAL BUILDINGS AND PROFESSORSHIPS The contributions made by the Founders of the Uni- versity residing out of the city of Atlanta are being seg- regated and separately recorded. The Board of Direc- tors has in mind the establishment of one or more me- morial professorships or buildings by each Southern State. Thus the local Synodical sentiment and loyalty will be worked into the life of Oglethorpe and each of her students will feel that a part of his own common- wealth is set down on her campus. ROLL OF HONOR The following churches have already taken part in the founding of Oglethorpe University and the work of adding the other churches of the denomination will continue steadily until every Presbyterian Church in the South has had a hand in the founding of Oglethorpe University: LIST OF CITIES AND TOWNS SUBSCRIBING $1,000.00 OR MORE Atlanta, Ga Chattanooga, Tenn., First Church ....$11 Central Church.. 2 Greensboro, N.

THE FACULTY OF THE UNIVERSITY The Board of Directors of Oglethorpe University, real- izing the responsibility upon them of selecting a faculty whose spiritual and intellectual equipment should be capable of satisfying the tremendous demand of a really great institution of learning, has spared no efforts or pains in securing a body of men who would not only possess that first requisite of a teacher, a great soul, but should also have those two other requisites of almost equal importance: power of imparting their ideals and knowledge, and intellectual acquirements adequate for their department. The most important element in edu- cation is the creation in the student of an intense yearn- ing for and delight in the Good, the True and the Beau- tiful, and the first essential for the creation of such a spirit is the example set before him by the Faculty. We are able at this time to announce the names of some of the members of the staff, more than sufficient for care- ful and adequate work during the first years of instruc- tion.

STUDENT SELF-GOVERNMENT AND ACTIVITIES Following the best standards of our most successful American colleges and universities, Oglethorpe is dis- ciplined as largely as is practicable by her own students. Herewith we give in full the names of the officers of the various self-government organizations. A year's expe- rience at the University has demonstrated the excellence of this method of self-control, and the efficient way in which all cases brought before the Students' Council and the Dormitory Court have been handled has once more demonstrated the thorough-going excellence of the plan. It is a special purpose of this system to develop the high- est ideals of personal conduct among the students, and this is done on the basis of their personal responsibility to their fellow students, to the Faculty, and to the tradi- tions of the University.

IMMEDIATE PURPOSE AND SCOPE The purpose of Oglethorpe University is to offer courses of study leading to the higher academic and pro- fessional degrees, under a Christian environment, and thus to train young men who wish to become specialists in professional and business life and teachers in our High Schools and Colleges, and to supply the growing 36 Oglethorpe University .-r.S 'S" '" a «.2 .-S c3 2 -a-3-S £ cd a -M S a m -a ■> u a ^ « •S 5 o'S > id D h n O 5 S-c 'SoH s Ah a . .2 £ C 3 +2 On u bfl C « * J ~ .S a - as § .2 a b"& g a £ ^ » I!

O ft ^ «-S S^-2 £ S3 a h - to _a .a -a, -3 «o o a Oglethorpe University 37 demand for specially equipped men in every depart- ment of human activity. The instruction began in Sep- tember, 1916, with the Freshman Class of the Collegiate Department; the Sophomore Class will be added in 1917, and the Junior and Senior Classes in 1918, and 1919, respectively. Certain post-graduate courses also, leading to the Master's and Doctor's degrees, were of- fered in 1916. Students who are looking forward to university work are invited to correspond with the President, in order that they may be putting themselves in line for the ad- vanced courses which are to be offered. Adequate Library and Laboratory facilities are being provided as the need for them arises. Free use will be made of city of Atlanta, in itself a remarkable labora- tory of industrial and scientific life, whose museums, libraries and municipal plants are at the disposal of our students for observation, inspection and investigation. The first unit of the building plan is the equivalent in capacity of four buildings, each 50 by 60 feet, three stories high. Of these, two are dormitories, one, lecture halls, laboratories and offices and the fourth, dining hall and refectory. There is also a central heating plant in addition. ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS In the Schools of Liberal Arts, Science, Commerce, Literature and Journalism The requirement for entrance to the Academic Schools of Oglethorpe University is fifteen units, from a school of good standing. Students offering twelve units may- be admitted on condition. In either case the candidate must present three units in English and two in Mathe- matics. In the Schools of Liberal Arts, Science and Lit- erature three units in Latin must also be offered. For removal of conditions see page 41. A unit represents a year's study in any subject in a secondary school, constituting approximately a quarter of a full year's work. The authorities of Oglethorpe University are fully ac- quainted with the educational situation in the South and in making their entrance requirements somewhat above rather than below the standard, they have not lost sight of the frequent insufficiencies of preparation of prospec- tive students brought about by inadequate High School facilities. It is the purpose of the University to make its degrees represent high attainment, but to furnish such facilities for students that this attainment will be fairly simple and easy. It is not our purpose by the adoption of specially high entrance requirements to drive away any students from our Institution. Adequate arrange- ments will be made for aiding any student who may be behind in his preparation in so far as such aid is consis- tent with the best ideals of college work. Oglethorpe University 39 LIST OF ENTRANCE UNITS The fifteen units may be selected from the following list: Units Composition and Rhetoric l 1 /^ English Literature 11/2 Algebra to Quadratics 1 Algebra through Binomial Theorem y 2 Plane Geometry 1 Solid Geometry y 2 Latin Grammar and Composition 1 Caesar, 4 books 1 Cicero, 6 orations 1 Vergil, 6 books 1 Greek 1, 2 or 3 German 1, 2 or 3 French 1, 2 or 3 Spanish Ancient History Mediaeval and Modern History English History American History Civil Government % or Physiography V2 0T Physiology Physics Chemistry Botany V2 0T Zoology Mj or Agriculture 1 or 2 Manual Training 1 or 2 Commercial Arithmetic y 2 Commercial Geography y 2 The President of the University will gladly answer any inquiries as to further details of entrance require- y 2 40 Oglethorpe University ments, upon request. An application blank will be found at the close of the catalogue. It is well for the prospective student to apply as early as possible. A blank for High School Certificate may be obtained by writing to the Registrar. Students who wish credit for college work done else- where must file with the Registrar a certificate from the institution in which the work was done. The Institution must be one that is recognized by the Faculty of Ogle- thorpe University, and the work must be satisfactory to the Professor of that department. REMOVAL OF CONDITIONS 1. Entrance Conditions. — Students admitted to partial standing in the Freshman Class may remove their entrance conditions by passing entrance examinations in the additional subjects necessary, provided such exam- inations are passed within two years after admission to the University. 2. Entrance conditions must be removed before the opening of the third college year. No student will be permitted to register for any subject of his third year until his entrance conditions are removed. 3. Students entering from other colleges will not be admitted to advanced standing in any class until all en- trance conditions have been removed. 4. College Conditions — A student whose term grade in any subject lies between 70 and 60 per cent shall have two re-examinations and no more. These Oglethorpe University 41 examinations for Fall and Winter Term conditions, will be set at the end of the succeeding term, and at the be- ginning of the next session. Examinations for removal of Spring Term conditions will be set at the beginning and end of the Fall Term of the next session. 5. A student whose term grade in any subject lies between 59 and 40 per cent shall have one re-examina- tion and no more at the beginning of the next session. 6. A student failing in both re-examinations in the first case or in the one re-examination in the second case will take the subject over in class. 7. A student whose term grade in any subject lies below 40 per cent will not be entitled to a re-examina- lion, but will be required to take the subject over in class. 8. The summer vacation should be devoted to work preparatory to condition examinations, as deficient stu- dents will not be permitted to carry extra work during term time. 9. Conditioned students absent from the regular condition examination must present an excuse satisfac- tory to the professor in charge of the subject or receive a zero for the examination. When an excuse has been accepted a special examination will be held for which a fee of two dollars will be charged, payable to the Registrar. 42 Oglethorpe University 10. Any student having eight term conditions at the beginning of the session will be required to take trie class over in all subjects. 11. No student with more than three term condi- tions may be permitted to register as a member of the next higher class, but shall be considered a member of the same class as the year before, until the number of his unremoved conditions shall not exceed three. 12. Conditions, whether due to failure, to incom- plete work, or to absence, must be made up within a year or the subject repeated in class. COURSES OF INSTRUCTION AND REQUIRE- MENTS FOR DEGREES In the session of 1917-18 Oglethorpe University will offer courses in the Freshman and Sophomore Classes of four schools leading to the customary Academic de- grees. The degree of Bachelor of Arts (B. A.) will be conferred upon those students satisfactorily completing a four years' course as outlined below, based largely on the study of "the Humanities". The degree of Bachelor of Science (B. S.) will be conferred upon those students who satisfactorily complete a four years' course largely in scientific studies. The degree of Bachelor of Litera- ture (B. Litt.) will be given to those students who com- plete a course including special work in languages, liter- ature and journalism. The degree of Bachelor of Com- merce (B. Com.) will be conferred upon those students who satisfactorily complete a full four years' course in studies relating particularly to business administration and industrial life. By a careful study of the courses outlined below the student will be easily able to make a choice most suita- ble to his tastes and probable future life. In general, it may be suggested that those students preparing to enter such professions as the Ministry or Law, will choose the B. A. course; those looking for- ward to Medicine, Dentistry and other Scientific work, the B. S. course; those expecting to enter the literary and journalistic field, the B. Litt. course, and those who intend to spend their lives in the business world the B. Com. course. 44 Oglethorpe University While each of these courses is so shaped as to influ- ence the student towards a specific end, colored largely by the type of studies they include, yet each course will be found to include such subjects of general culture as are necessary to the education of a life as distinguished from a living.

The Senior year is almost entirely elective, subject to the approval of the Faculty of the School of Commerce. Students not candidates for the degree, and desirous of taking special courses offered here, may be admitted by faculty action, their schedule being subject to ap- proval by the head of the School of Commerce. Elective courses offered will be given only on the application of a number of students sufficient to war- rant the operation of the course. 50 Oglethorpe University The electives offered for the Junior and Senior years are: Hrs.

In supplying this need, which has for a long while been acutely felt in the South, the management of the University will be content with only the very highest grade of work and facilities, Courses leading to the Master's and Doctor's degrees in certain departments will be found outlined elsewhere in this catalogue under the appropriate department heading. These degrees are based on that of Bachelor of Arts of Oglethorpe University or of some other ap- proved institution. In general, it may be said that the degree of Master of Arts will be given for one year of additional study in graduate subjects more or less re- lated to each other. The degree of Doctor of Philos- ophy requires at least three years of graduate work. But neither degree is guaranteed at the end of a fixed period of time. A certain amount of work must be ac- complished, and the quality of it must be such as to sat- isfy the Professors concerned and the whole Faculty. It is required that the candidate for Ph. D. demonstrate by examination not later than the end of his first year his ability to read German and French, and the student must have completed the under-graduate work in the subject to which he wishes to give his chief attention. In this connection, the prospective student will be in- terested in learning that all Professors chosen as the 52 Oglethorpe University heads of departments in Oglethorpe University must have obtained the highest academic degree offered in that department. This fact is mentioned in order to in- dicate the earnest determination of the Board of Direc- tors of the University that her Faculty shall include only men of the highest intellectual attainment as well as men of great teaching power and strong personal character. The President of the University will be pleased to answer any inquiries as to graduate courses to be offered during 1917-18. PROFESSIONAL SCHOOLS The steady drift of the wisest opinion of the educa- tional world looks toward the union of academic with professional education. The broadening effect of asso- ciation of professional students with other classmen on the university campus, as well as the valuable opportu- nity for contact with academic work, renders this con- nection highly desirable. It is the purpose of the Uni- versity to enter the field of professional education as quickly as funds are secured to enable us to do so ade- quately. Schools of Engineering, Architecture, Dentis- try, Law and Medicine will be established as opportunity offers, but no work will be undertaken that cannot be ex- ecuted with the same quality of matter and form that is offered in the best institutions of our country. SPECIAL COURSES Students who are looking forward to Medicine, Law or Engineering and who do not desire to study for an Academic degree are allowed to take such courses as Oglethorpe University 53 will lead to their professional work. Such students must present at least twelve units for entrance; of these four and one-half are required: English (3) and Mathe- matics (l^/o). The following courses are suggested: Pre-Medical : First Year — Physics (1), Chemistry (1), German (1), English (1) (elective); Bible (1) (elective). Second Year — Chemistry (2), Biology (1), Ger- man (2), French (1), English (2) (elective); Bible (2) (elective). Pre-Legal: First Year — English (1), Bible (1), His- tory (1), Latin (1), Mathematics (1). Second Year — English (2), History (2), Modern Language (1), Bible (2), and one elective. Pre-Engineering: First Year — Mathematics (1), Physics (1), Chemistry (1), English (1) (elec- tive); Bible (1) (elective). Second Year — Mathematics (2), Physics (2), Modern Language (1), Bible (2) (elective). PRE-PROFESSIONAL WORK The attention of the prospective student should, how- ever, be clearly called to the fact that each year finds it more necessary for the professional man to have a thor- ough foundation for his professional studies, and the professional schools are becoming more strict in their requirements for entrance. Particularly is this the case in Medicine, where the best medical colleges require a diploma from a standard college for entrance. We 54 Oglethorpe University would strongly advise our students to study the sugges- tions made on page 43 and have their college diploma safely in hand before they enter their professional studies. COURSES OF INSTRUCTION FOR 1917-18 The policy of the Board of Directors of the Univer- sity has been and will be to "hasten slowly" in the work of organization of the Institution. They, therefore, be- gan the first year's work with one class, the Freshman. During 1917-18 courses will be provided for the Fresh- man and Sophomore Classes. The courses outlined herewith, are stated, therefore, fully for the Freshman and Sophomore years and in ab- breviated form for the years to follow except in those departments for which full Professors have been chosen and in which the Institution is ready to offer graduate as well as under-graduate courses. The courses offered for the year 1917-18 are as fol- lows: BIBLICAL AND RELIGIOUS LITERATURE The course in English Bible extends over two years; it is required for B. A., B. S., B. Litt. and B. Com. de- grees, and must be pursued by every under-graduate student. The first year will be devoted to the Old Testament, the second to the New Testament, together with the inter- vening period. The study will include the mastery of the history contained in the Bible, an analysis of each Oglethorpe University 55 book, and such other matters as are required for the proper understanding of the work. It will be treated not from a sectarian point of view, nor as mere history or literature. The aim will be to impart such a knowl- edge of the subject as every intelligent man should pos- sess, enabling him to read his Bible with pleasure and profit. The effort will be made to give the students the proper defense of seeming difficulties in the Bible, both for their own benefit, and that they may be able to meet the objections of unbelievers. Text-Books. — The English Bible (with references) will be the chief text-book. Such other books as are needed will be indicated from time to time. This course will be followed in the Junior and Senior years by Psychology, Moral Philosophy, Theism, Ethics, and Evidences of Christianity. ENGLISH The Department of English will strive to create a love for the best in literature and arouse a keen interest in the student's own language. The traditions of Oglethorpe University, which num- bers among her alumni, Sidney Lanier, one of the "Nine immortal Muses of America", render it a necessary as well as a delightful task, to give full emphasis to this department. The Freshman year will be devoted to a careful study of the best forms of English Literature, prose and poetry, with frequent exercises in the art of composition. 56 Oglethorpe University The first half of the year will include the study of American authors and best prose forms, and the latter half will be devoted to typical and representative verse. In this connection the life and works of Sidney Lanier will be especially studied as an example of an illustrious national writer, born and educated in the South. Three times a week throughout the year. Required for B. A., B. S., B. Litt. and B. Com. courses. In the Sophomore year courses will be offered cover- ing a critical study of the earlier epochs of English Lit- erature and a number of masterpieces. Students of this class pursuing work in the School of Commerce, will be given a course in Business English, in which every phase of modern business requirements will be covered. Es- sentials, too often overlooked entirely, will be stressed. Three times a week throughout the year. Required for B. Com. course. The Junior year will continue in historical sequence, and the Senior year will be concerned largely with American writers of prose and poetry. The courses will include frequent special lectures by visiting literati as well as by the Professor in charge. GREEK Three years of Greek will be offered in the under- graduate classes, together with a preparatory class for those who are unprepared for Greek I. Preparatory Greek. — This class is designed not merely for those who have no knowledge of the Oglethorpe University 57 language, but also for those whose preparation is inadequate. The most important subjects, both in inflection and syntax, are presented early in the course, and then, by a system of weekly reviews, are kept constantly fresh. Text-Books. — Benner and Smyth's Beginner's Greek Book, Xenophon's Anabasis (Goodwin and White). Three times a week throughout the year. Not counted for a degree. 1. — The preparation for entrance into this class is not so much a matter of time as of thoroughness. The student is expected to know the ordinary Attic inflections and syntax, to have read about one book of the Anabasis, and to have had considerable prac- tice in translating English into Greek. The use of accents is required. A part of the work of this class consists of the minute study of the verbs, their principal parts, synopsis of tenses, and the inflection of certain portions. Written translations of English into Greek are required once a week. On the other days a short oral exercise of this kind forms a part of the les- son; so that in each recitation some practice is had in translating English into Greek. Text-Books. — Xenophon's Anabasis (Goodwin and White), Memorabilia, Adams's Lysias, Goodwin's Greek Grammar, Pearson's Greek Prose Composition, Myers's Eastern Na- 58 Oglethorpe University tions and Greece, Liddell and Scott's Greek Lexicon (unabridged). Three times a week throughout the year. Elective. 2. — In the first term Demosthenes will be read; in the second, Herodotus; in the third, Homer. The subject of Phonetics is presented and illus- trated by chart and model of the larynx showing the position of the vocal organs. Text-Books. — Demosthenes On the Crown (Humphreys), Herodotus (Smith and Laird), Homer's Odyssey (Perrin and Seymour), De- mosthenes and Herodotus (Ancient Classics for English Readers), Church's Stories from Homer, Fowler's Greek Literature. Three times a week throughout the year. Elective. 3. — The time of this class will be divided be- tween prose and poetry. After the study of Thucy- dides and Plato, the reading of Sophocles will be taken up. The life of the ancient Greeks will also be considered. Text-Books. — Thucydides (Morris), Plato (For- man), Sophocles' Oedipus Tyrannus (Earle), Thucydides and Plato (Ancient Classics for English Readers), Church's Stories from the Greek Tragedians, Gulick's Life of the An- cient Greeks. Three times a week throughout the year. Elective. Graduate Courses. — A brief statement of the work proposed may be given here. Fuller details will Oglethorpe University 59 be announced later. Those who are thinking of taking the graduate courses are advised to write to the President or to the Professor, that their pre- liminary studies may be so guided as to fit them for the work. The requirements' for entrance into these courses are given elsewhere in this catalogue, under the head of Graduate School. The work of this department may be considered under three heads, each running through three years: I. Literary. — The aim will be to read a large amount of Greek. The first year will be devoted to Homer, the second to the Attic period, the third to the later literature. II. Scientific. — Certain philological subjects will be pursued, such as the History of Classical Philol- ogy, Textual Criticism, Inscriptions, Palaeography (including the study of Papyri), Archaeology. III. Practical. — The student will be required to attend one of the under-graduate classes, and from time to time will conduct the recitation in the presence of the Professor, in order that he may gain some experience in teaching. COURSE IN NEW TESTAMENT GREEK Some book of the New Testament will be taken up and studied systematically. There will be one meeting a week, at a time to be determined later. The only book needed will be a copy of the New Testament in Greek; the best is Westcott and Hort's New Testament in Greek, Students' Edition, with lexicon ($1.90). 60 Oglethorpe University LATIN 1. — For entrance into this class the student is ex- pected to have read the usual amounts of Caesar, Cicero and Vergil, as set forth under the head of Entrance Units. He must also be able to translate English into Latin with some facility. Livy, Cicero de Senectute and Sallust's Catiline will be studied in this year. A brief history of Rome will also be included. Prose composition, both oral and writ- ten, will be carried on throughout the year. Text-Books. — Livy XXI, XXII (Greenough and Peck), Cicero de Senectute, Sallust's Catiline. Allen and Greenough's Latin Grammar, His- tory of Rome, Harpers' Latin Dictionary. Three times a week throughout the year. Re- quired for B. A. course. 2. — The studies of this class will be in Cicero's Letters, Horace and Plautus. A course in Latin Literature will also be given. Three times a week throughout the year. Elective. 3. — This class will begin with Terence, and then take up Tacitus and Juvenal. Ancient Roman life will be considered in this part of the course. Three times a week throughout the year. Elective. Teachers' Course. — A course of instruction will be given for teachers in and near Atlanta. The aim will be to suggest methods for beginners and for classes in Cassar, Cicero and Vergil. Certain departments of the grammar will be discussed, e. g., the Subjunctive Mood ; Oglethorpe University 61 scanning will be illustrated, and attention given to topics which have caused difficulty to teachers. Suggestions will be made as to the best means of helping pupils to acquire a good vocabulary in Latin. The mode of pro- cedure and the subjects treated will depend somewhat on the personnel of the class. The work will be undertaken if as many as ten per- sons offer themselves. This class will probably meet on Saturdays. Graduate Course for Special Students. — Persons who are teaching or otherwise occupied during the week and who would like to do some graduate work in Latin or Greek by coming on Saturdays, should communicate with the Professor. FRENCH For the present a two years' course in French will be offered. 1. — This is a class for beginners, but the idea is to advance as rapidly as possible to a reading knowledge of the language. Careful attention will be given from the first to pronunciation. Text-Books. — Fraser and Squair's French Grammar; a French Reader, to be followed by some simple text. Three times a week throughout the year. Elective. Not counted for a degree unless followed by French 2. 2. — The aim of this class will be to read more rap- idly both prose and poetry. French History and Litera- ture will also be studied. Three times a week through- out the year. Elective. 62 Oglethorpe University SPANISH Developing a reading knowledge of the language and also practice in composing business letters and in con- versation. First Year. — Two hours a week. De Vitis' Spanish Grammar. Harrison's Spanish Commercial Correspond- ence. Second Year. — To be arranged.

Oglethorpe University 63 Work leading to the degree of M. A. is offered and anyone interested may receive details on application. Stacy-Capers Telescope — By the generosity of Thomas Stacy Capers the well-known telescope of Dr. James Stacy has become the property of the University. It is a six-inch refracting instrument with a focal length of ninety inches. It was formerly the property of the uncle of the donor who was an alumnus of the Old Oglethorpe and is named in honor of them both. HISTORY 1. Mediaeval and Modern History of Europe. A survey of Continental Europe and Great Britain from the time of Charlemagne, 800 A. D., to the Congress of Vienna. Throughout the course emphasis is laid on the leading institutions, epochal events and dominant personalities of the several periods. Instruction will be imparted by means of lectures, text-books, source books, maps and papers. S. B. Harding, History of Mediaeval and Modern Europe. Three times a week. Freshman year. Elective. Fall, Winter and Spring Terms. 2. (a). The Development of Modern Europe from the Congress of Vienna to the present time.

The work in the Junior and Senior years will be similar to that in our best institutions and will be announced in detail later. GERMAN The purpose of the work in this department is to give a reasonably fluent ability in the speaking of German, this to be followed by more critical study of Grammar. Accordingly the first work will be largely conversational and translation will be avoided. By means of easy stories "Sprachgefuehl" will gradually be developed. It is expected that a student will be able to speak the language after two years of study. 1. Elementary German. The elements of German Grammar with reading and composition. During the Spring Term one evening in the week will be devoted to the singing of German songs, "Gesangabend". Walter Krause's Beginner's German.

SCIENCES The purpose of the departments of Chemistry, Physics and Biology may be briefly stated as follows : 66 Oglethorpe University 1. To offer thorough lecture and laboratory courses of informational and disciplinary value as part of a gen- eral college curriculum. No apology is necessary for the belief that he only can claim to be truly educated who has learned in some measure to observe accurately, to reason logically from his observations, and to co- ordinate hand and brain in all that he may do. 2. To offer progressive and sequential courses de- signed to give a high degree of knowledge and technical proficiency to the Scientific Student specializing in one or more of these sciences. 3. To offer such courses in these sciences as are commonly required for entrance into our best schools of medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, and engineering. 4. To offer courses designed to meet the needs of Prospective Teachers of these sciences in colleges and secondary schools, giving them not only a thorough training in the content of the subjects, but also in the best methods of imparting it to others. 5. To offer to properly prepared Graduate Students advanced courses and opportunities for research in one or more of these sciences, leading to advanced Academic degrees. CHEMISTRY 1: (a). General Chemistry. (b). Experimental Chemistry and Qualitative Analysis. Lectures, demonstrations and recitations, together with selected exercises in the laboratory, designed not Oglethorpe University 67 only to impart a knowledge of the principles of the science, and of the more important facts in connection with the metallic and non-metallic elements, but to con- stitute an introduction to scientific methods of experi- mentation, observation and reasoning. During the first half of the year the lectures precede the work of the laboratory, in which the student is ex- pected to verify and illustrate many of the principles and facts which have been discussed in the lecture room. During the latter half of the year, while the lectures are on the chemistry of the metals, the laboratory work will be systematic qualitative analysis. No previous study of chemistry is required for ad- mission to this course, but the instruction is so arranged that work of a somewhat advanced character is given to those students who have spent considerable time upon chemical work in secondary schools. This course fulfills the chemistry requirements for admission into medical colleges. Three lectures and recitations, and four hours of lab- oratory work per week through the year. Required of Sophomores in B. A., B. S., B. Litt., B. Com. courses, and of Pre-Medical students. 2. (a). Organic Chemistry. (b). Quantitative Analysis. (c). Practical Organic Chemistry. The lectures, demonstrations, and recitations in or- ganic chemistry continue through the year. In the lab- 68 Oglethorpe University oratory, exercises which have been carefully chosen to illustrate the principles of volumetric and gravimetric analysis, are given during the first half of the year. The remainder of the time is occupied with the prepara- tion of typical organic compounds and their analysis and identification. Three lectures and recitations, and four hours of lab- oratory work per week throughout the year. Required of second year Pre-Medical students. Elective for all others. 3. (a). Theoretical and Physical Chemistry. (b) . Physical Chemical Measurements. (c). Advanced Quantitative Analysis. A study of the laws of chemical combination; the properties of gases, liquids, solids; solutions; thermo- chemistry; electro-chemistry; chemical dynamics and statics. The laboratory time will be divided between exercises in physical chemical measurements, as for example, vapor densities, molecular weights, degree of ionization, electrical conductivities, transport numbers, reaction velocities, etc., and exercises in quantitative analysis of a more technical and advanced character than those given in 2-b. Two hours lecture, six hours laboratory practice per week through the year. Elective. Graduate Work. — No student will be accepted for graduate work who cannot satisfy the department as to Oglethorpe University 69 his preparation in inorganic, organic and elementary physical chemistry, and qualitative and quantitative analysis. It is not thought advisable to outline at pres- ent detailed courses for graduate students. Work will be offered as needed in advanced organic, inorganic, physical and historical chemistry, and in the laboratory in special methods of analysis, as food and drug analy- sis, water analysis, gas analysis, electro analysis, and metallurgical analysis. When the student is deemed prepared, he will be given a problem for investigation, usually co-operating with the instructor in his own researches. Prospective grad- uate students should correspond with the department as early as possible, giving a full account of their previous preparation and of the character of work they wish to pursue. Equipment. — The facilities for demonstration in the lecture room and for work in the laboratory are quite adequate for present needs, and will be added to con- tinually. The laboratory is equipped with all necessary working desks, hoods, hot plates, drying ovens, and water stills, and gas, water, electric current, blast and vacuum are conveniently at hand. The library contains standard books of reference and some technical journals, and in addition, the facilities of the Atlanta libraries are at the disposal of the pupils. PHYSICS 1. General Physics. — Lectures, demonstrations, recitations, and laboratory exercises on the mechanics 70 Oglethorpe University of solids and fluids, molecular mechanics, the phenom- ena and laws of sound, heat, light, electricity and mag- netism. The laboratory work is almost exclusively quantita- tive, designed to impart training in the manipulation of instruments employed in physical investigation, and to give practice in properly recording, interpreting, and reducing experimental data. This course fulfills the requirements of the Pre-Med- ical year. Three lectures and recitations, four hours of labora- tory work per week through the year. Required of Freshmen in B. A., B. S., B. Litt. courses, Sophomores in B. Com. course, and of first year Pre-Medical stu- dents. 2. Theoretical Physics: Mechanics, Heat, Light, Electricity, Magnetism. — Essentially the same ground is covered as in this part of Course 1, but the subject is presented in a more detailed way both experimentally and mathematically. The laboratory work is of a more rigidly accurate character and particular attention is directed to the rec- ognition, elimination and estimation of errors. Two lectures and recitations, six hours of laboratory work per week through the year. Elective. Graduate Work. — The statements made above in re- gard to graduate work in chemistry apply in the main to physics. Special work of an advanced character will Oglethorpe University 71 be given to those who may be prepared in physics and in mathematics according to their need or desires and the facilities of the Institution. Equipment. — It will be the aim to continually pro- vide the pupil with apparatus of the highest grade and to enlarge the equipment as may be necessary. BIOLOGY 1. General Biology. — The purpose of the course is to acquaint the general student with the principles of biology through selected practical studies of living things. A survey is made of the morphology and phy- siology, classification and life history of selected types, designed to give the student who goes no further with the subject a comprehensive view of the animal and vegetable kingdoms, while for the student who will con- tinue biological study, it is intended to afford a sub- stantial basis for more extensive and intensive special work. The laboratory work is of especial significance. Much emphasis is placed on the accuracy with which the stu- dent's note book depicts what he has seen through his microscope, and in the types dissected. This course fulfills the requirements of the Pre-Med- ical year. Three lectures and recitations, four hours laboratory work per week through the year. Required of Sopho- mores in B. S. course and of second year Pre-Medical students. Elective for all others. 72 Oglethorpe University 2. Human Anatomy and Physiology. — While nec- essarily this course is not as exhaustive as when given in the best schools of medicine, it supplies a splendid foun- dation for the latter. The origin and development of the various structures of the human body, and their functions, are in all cases presented in relation to those of lower forms of animal life. The laboratory work of the course is mostly mam- malian anatomy, based upon a study of the cat, but dis- sections are made of other animals as well. Two lectures and recitations, six hours laboratory work per week through the year. Elective. 3. Bacteriology. — A study of bacterial life and development. Non-pathologic bacteria are mostly stu- died. The laboratory work is designed to impart the impor- tant points of bacteriological technique, as cleansing and sterilization of apparatus, preparation of culture media, methods of culture and staining. Two lectures and recitations, six hours laboratory work per week through the year. Graduate Work. — No announcement of graduate work will be made at present. Equipment. — The equipment of the laboratory con- sists of the usual dissecting tables, microscopes, micro- tomes, ovens and sterilizers, etc., and collections of slides and other illustrative material. SCHOOL OF COMMERCE Commerce The School of Commerce with its allied departments has as its central idea the presenting of a course of study designed to give an adequate and thorough prepa- ration for a business career. It should not be confounded with the well known "Business College," as the Manual Training School is often confounded with the Engineering College of a University. A School of Commerce does not turn out stenograph- ers, typists and book-keepers; it produces accountants, managers and executives. OUTLINE OF COURSES Accounting 1. Elementary Accounting. — A thorough study of the basic theory of accounting debits and credits, and the obtaining of a knowledge of the methods and forms used in the recording of transactions; and the compila- tion and interpretation of statements based thereon.

Oglethorpe University 79 THE OGLETHORPE IDEA Quality is the word that expresses the Oglethorpe idea — quality in location, in climate, in campus, in archi- tecture, in student character, in college life, in athletics and sports, in faculty, in curriculum, and in religion and morals. Every one of these we offer at Oglethorpe. Located in the commercial and educational capital of the South, with an unrivaled climate, on the most elegant street of that city, on a most beautiful campus of over one hundred and thirty acres of woodland and meadow, including an eighty-two acre lake which belongs to our students for swimming, boating and fishing, the physical advantages offered by Oglethorpe University are unsur- passed anywhere in the section. One by one a splendid body of buildings is being erected on its campus. Every one of them will be of granite trimmed with limestone and covered with heavy green slate. All of them will be as fire-proof as human skill can make them and as commodious and comforta- ble as our architects* can plan them. They will be like the first building already erected, which is believed to be the safest, most beautiful and most efficient college or university building in the Southeast. THE OGLETHORPE SITE— ATLANTA The attractions of the City of Atlanta as an educa- tional center are fast making it one of the great intellec- tual dynamos of the nation. Gifted with a soft, South- *Messrs. Morgan and Dillon and W. T. Downing of Atlanta. The landscape work is in the hands of Mr. Chas. W. Leavitt of New York. 80 Oglethorpe University ern mountain climate, convenient of access to the entire nation over its many lines of railway, known everywhere as the center of Southern activities, she draws to herself as to a magnet the great minds of the nation and the world. Hither come lecturers, musicians, statesmen, evangelists, editors, teachers and officials of the United States. An intellectual atmosphere created by such con- ditions and the frequent opportunity of contact with these leaders in all branches of human activity offered frequently to our students give Oglethorpe University an advantage of position and of opportunity which she will cultivate to the uttermost. Facilities for hearing and meeting the great musicians and authors and public speakers and the leaders in all spheres of intellectual activity will be offered our students. The tremendous influence of such contact upon the young lives committed to us will be felt in increased ambition and redoubled determination to perform, themselves, their duty to their race and their God. THE SILENT FACULTY AT OGLETHORPE It is not going too far to say that the aesthetic tastes and home habits of many young men are ruined at col- lege by the cheap and unattractive furnishings of their rooms and the ugly, forbidding architecture of the build- ings, whose walls often deface their campus. The archi- tecture of an institution of learning should be a constant source of delight and inspiration to its students, teaching quietly, but surely the highest ideals of life. Indeed all those qualities of soul we know as honesty, solidity, dig- Oglethorpe University 81 nity, durability, reverence and beauty may be expressed in the face of a building as surely as in that of a man and are so expressed on the Oglethorpe campus. Not less important are the personal surroundings of the student's room. Cheap, ugly and ill-equipped apart- ments have exactly the same influence on the soul of a boy that cheap, ugly and ill-equipped human compan- ions have. That is why the rooms at Oglethorpe are handsomely furnished. The sons of the poor are en- titled to the information and inspiration such surround- ings offer, and the sons of the rich will deteriorate with- out them. In brief the college education that does not teach a love of beauty and tidiness and what is popularly called "decency," is essentially and dangerously defective. This is the special work of the Silent Faculty at Ogle- thorpe. THE EXCEPTIONAL OPPORTUNITIES OF OUR FIRST YEARS Young men who desire to enjoy the daily personal contact and instruction of the heads of departments will note with interest that our first few years will offer ex- ceptional opportunities of that nature. It is well known that in all our large institutions only the upper classmen come in any close contact with the full Professors, who as heads of departments occupy their time in other mat- ters than educating Freshmen. We believe in giving our Freshmen the best we have, and they will be taught by men who have taught in or 82 Oglethorpe University had offered them, chairs in the greatest universities of America. While this will be a permanent policy at Oglethorpe, yet the fact that we shall open in the Fall of 1917 with only two classes, the Freshman and Sophomore, offers a perfect opportunity for its exemplification, which dis- cerning students and parents will not fail to note.

All the buildings of the University will be like the first one that is now finished, which is believed to be absolutely fireproof, being constructed of steel, concrete and granite with partitions of brick and hollow tile. The Boarding Department of the Institution is con- ducted at cost to the student. Thoroughly first-class ser- vice will be given. The skimmed milk diet which pro- duces skimmed milk thinking will be studiously avoided. Price of board is included in the room rent. The prices named below are based upon two grades of rooms. The first of these comprises the entire second floor of the first building, which is fifty (50) feet wide and one hundred and eighty (180) feet long, and is com- posed of suites of rooms, each suite including a bed room, bath and study. The price charged for the suite includes first-class board, steam heat, electric lights, water and janitor's service and all rooms are furnished adequately and substantially. Every room in the dor- mitory contains ample closet space. The suites are large, airy, safe and comfortable and are roomy enough for the use of from one to four young men.

Room linen and bed-clothing will be furnished by the student. Applications for rooms should be filed at once. Oglethorpe University 87 UNIVERSITY FEES The university fees are: The tuition fee for the entire year SI 00.00 Other college fees, including matriculation, li- brary, athletic, medical, etc 25.00 Total $125.00 All university fees are payable one-half on entrance and one-half February 1, 1918. Laboratory and science fees are made as low as is consistent with the proper use of laboratory materials. A "caution money" deposit of $5.00 is required, which is returnable at the end of the catalog year, less deduc- tions, if any, for damage done to property of the Insti- tution. The following laboratory fees, payable at the begin- ning of each term, are charged those students who are pursuing under-graduate courses in the several labora- tories : Physics $6.00 per year Biology 9.00 per year Chemistry 12.00 per year By special request of the students of the University, a Student Activities Fee of $10.00 will be charged each student at time of registration in September. The sum so collected will be transferred to the treasuries of the various student organizations and will entitle the stu- dent to a membership pass to all games of the Athletic Association in Atlanta or on the home field, one year's subscription to the Oglethorpe Times, and a full mem- bership card to the Student Senate. 88 Oglethorpe University TOTAL COST FOR THE YEAR It will be observed that the total cost for the entire year, including tuition and all college fees, board and room rent, heat, light and janitor service ranges from $312.50 per year upward according to the rooming ac- commodations desired. STUDENT HELP It is the intention of the authorities of the University to see that a way is provided as far as possible for the assistance of any student who may be in pecuniary need and yet desirous of prosecuting his studies at Ogle- thorpe. A special Faculty Committee will co-operate with students to that end. As a general rule it is best for the student that he should be able to devote all of his time to his academic duties, but where circumstances require it many stu- dents may undertake various tasks, such as table-wait- ing, and other dormitory duties, payment for which materially aids them in meeting their expenses. For further information address the President, Ogle- thorpe University, Ga. SPECIAL LOAN FUND By the generosity of a good friend who does not wish his name mentioned, the University is able to lend a limited sum each year to deserving students who would otherwise be unable to prosecute their studies at Ogle- thorpe. Further details upon application. ATHLETICS— SILVER LAKE The policy of Oglethorpe University includes the de- velopment of the physical life of our students as a mat- Oglethorpe University 89 ter of large importance. Physical and hygienic welfare and instruction will be a part of the curriculum of the Institution. A modern gymnasium, adequately equipped is included in plans for one of the next buildings to be constructed. Special attention is at present being given to outdoor athletics. Adequate provision is being made for foot-ball and base-ball grounds, tennis courts, etc. In addition to these sports common to all well equipped colleges in the South, Oglethorpe University is the fortunate possessor of a beautiful lake covering eighty acres located conveniently to the university cam- pus, with a part of its shore set aside for a university boat house. This will enable the Institution to add a crew to its list of athletic sports. The lake is admirably suited for boating, rowing, swimming and fishing. A sanely encouraging attitude is taken by the Univer- sity toward inter-collegiate athletics, and Oglethorpe Uni- versity is acquitting herself well in that sphere of her educational life. Regular instruction, looking to symmetrical develop- ment of the entire man will be given in the Athletic De- partment of the University, under competent medical guidance. COUNTRY CLUB MEMBERSHIPS By the kindness of Mr. J. W. Leroux, two prizes cov- ering the fees necessary to the general membership of the Capital City Country Club, which is located near the university campus, have been offered to the students of Oglethorpe. These memberships were won last year by Messrs. W. R. Carlisle and W. States Jacobs, Jr. 90 Oglethorpe University COLLEGE CO-OP. One of the interesting features of university life at Oglethorpe is the University Store, managed for the ben- efit of the students themselves, under the superintend- ence of the Faculty. Professor E. C. Gruen has active charge of this department, which is, in a sense, one of the laboratories of the School of Commerce. A Bank is operated in connection with it, and all stu- dents are encouraged to keep their deposits therein, pay- ing their bills of all sorts by check, thus giving them a still further introduction into the actual practice of hand- ling accounts in a business-like way. In the store are kept all the necessary college acces- sories. Any ordinary purchase may thus be made most conveniently, as full lines of goods answering the va- rious college requirements are constantly kept on hand. Dividends on purchases made are delivered at the close of the Academic year. MORAL AND RELIGIOUS ATMOSPHERE The ability of a college or university to develop wor- thy character in its students depends largely upon that indefinable quality called "college atmosphere". As a mother, she breathes her own soul into her boys. They inherit all that she has been through; all of labor and strength and faith and prayer. If her judgments have been bought out with money they inherit that; if with blood they inherit that. Every storm through which she has passed strengthens them for their own conflicts in the days that are to come. Oglethorpe University 91 Oglethorpe is a daughter of battle and faith and prayer. God alone built her, touching the hearts of multitudes of His children at the voice of her call. Alone of all the prominent ante-bellum universities she died for her ideals and alone of all the universities of America God has raised her from the dead. By her every battle, her every faith, her every tri- umph, she has learned what things are really worth while and what hand really to lean upon. She will tell her children of Him. SPECIAL RELIGIOUS EXERCISES— VESPER SERVICES Regular chapel exercises, which the students are re- quired to attend, are conducted by each of the members of the Faculty in turn, at 8:45 o'clock each morning. The student life at Oglethorpe is also blessed by the ac- tivities of the Y. M. C. A., and frequent sermons and addresses by visiting pastors and evangelists. Also the vesper services held each Sabbath evening at a convenient hour form an important feature of the religious life of the University. Able and consecrated men and pastors of Atlanta or visitors to die city speak to the students of the University successively during the entire year. Attendance upon these services is purely voluntary. They offer unusual opportunities not only for religious instruction, but for the students to meet and know the leaders in religious life and thought of the entire Southeast. During the past year the following well-known men spoke to the students of the University on the dates specified : 92 Oglethorpe University Dr. C. W. Daniel, October 8, 1916. Dr. R. 0. Flinn, October 15, 1916. Dr. A. A. Little, October 22, 1916. Dr. Dunbar H. Ogden, October 29, 1916. Dr. W. W. Memminger, November 5, 1916. Rev. G. R. Buford, November 12, 1916. Dr. C. 0.

LIBRARY By the generosity of many friends, so great as to be almost unparalleled, the University received during the first year of its life approximately five thousand volumes for the library. These consist of standard works in Lit- erature, History and Science, with many valuable refer- ence works in special departments. The Private Libraries of Dr. Caldwell in Science, and of Dr. Nicolassen in the Classics, are both available for the use of students in these departments. The policy of the Institution is to let no year go by without the enlargement of the library. A competent librarian is in charge and the rooms will be open during the year of 1917-18 approximately eight hours per day. The Public Library of Atlanta is also available for the use of our students. DIRECTIONS TO NEW STUDENTS Students coming to Oglethorpe University from a dis- tance should remember that Oglethorpe University has its own station on the main line of the Southern Railway between Atlanta and Washington. Tickets may be pur- chased and baggage checked to Oglethorpe University, Georgia, the station being immediately in front of the campus. Students coming to Atlanta over other lines may either check their baggage to the University station, or may have it delivered at a special rate of $1.00 per 94 Oglethorpe University trunk by the Atlanta Baggage & Cab Company. In using the latter method mention should always be made of the special students' rate at the time the order is given. PUBLIC UTILITIES Oglethorpe University has the double advantage of being located in the suburbs of Atlanta, so far out as not to be subject to the distractions of city life, yet so near in as to enjoy all the public utilities of a great city. Among these are city water, electric lights, city trolley line, telephone and telegraph service, and in addition thereto the University has its own postoffice, express office and railway station, all known as Oglethorpe Uni- versity, Georgia. WOMEN'S BOARD One of the most remarkable gatherings, even in this city of remarkable gatherings, was the assembling of approximately two hundred of the representative women of the city of Atlanta at the home of Mrs. Thornwell Jacobs, Saturday afternoon, November 25, 1916, to or- ganize a Women's Board for Oglethorpe University. The purpose of the Board is to aid the University in every wise and efficient way, with counsel of and guid- ance by the proper authorities of the Institution. Al- ready more than two hundred of the finest workers and most representative women of the city have offered their services and joined the organization. Their activities are directed toward the support and development of Oglethorpe in every phase of its growth and activities. Each of the ladies is assigned to the committee on which Oglethorpe University 95 she feels best able to serve. These committees cover the various departments of the University, and among them are: Ways and Means, Finance, Grounds, Press, Enter- tainment, Hospital, Music, Library and Art, Refresh- ments, Transportation, and such other committees as it may seem wise to the Board from time to time to ap- point. The authorities of the University welcome the forma- tion of this organization with the greatest joy. The mere fact that they have promised a devoted allegiance to the enterprise alone has its own genuine value, but those who know the women of Atlanta, with their mar- velous capacity for earnest and consecrated work di- rected by a swift and accurate intelligence, will realize best what must be the results of the efficient aid which they are giving to the Institution. Officers and Chairmen of the various committees have been unanimously chosen as follows: Mrs. Thornwell Jacobs, President; Mrs. John K. Ott- ley, First Vice-President; Mrs. J. M. High, Second Vice- President; Mrs. James R. Gray, Third Vice-President; Mrs. Geo. W. Parrott, Fourth Vice-President; Mrs. Frank Inman, Fifth Vice-President; Mrs. A. A. Little, Secretary; Mrs. E. D. Crane, Treasurer; Mr. Joel Hun- ter, Auditor; Mrs. John K. Ottley, Chairman of Execu- tive Board. Mrs. Archibald Davis, Chairman Ways and Means; Mrs. Berta Swift, Finance; Mrs. Cobb Caldwell, Grounds; Mrs. Stuart Witham, Press; Mrs. Clem Har- ris, Entertainment; Mrs. Arnold Broyles, First Vice- 96 Oglethorpe University Chairman ; Mrs. Hugh Bancker, Second Vice-Chairman ; Mrs. C. D. Walker, Third Vice-Chairman; Mrs. Jas. T. Williams, Hospital; Mrs. Linton Johnson, Chairman Glee Club; Mrs. Albert Thornton, Art; Mrs. J. D. McCarty, Refreshments; Mrs. Stephen Barnett, Trans- portation; Mrs. George McCarty, Library; Mrs. J. D. Osborne, Membership; Mrs. J. T. Stephenson, Vice- Chairman Membership; Mrs. W. S. Elkin, Building.
